The Fall Brochure will be delivered the week of July 15! It's packed with details about upcoming community events, our Annual Report and fall program information. Mark your calendars for our registration dates.
Staggering the dates of registration, based on feedback from the community, has improved the registration software’s performance and the District intends to continue with the software through 2020, as long as this performance continues.
With this in mind, program registration for Gymnastics will begin Saturday July 27 at 8 a.m. General Registration and Courts Plus Registration will occur the following week on Saturday, August 3 at 8 a.m.
Elmhurst Park District is busy preparing the Spring Brochure and is looking forward to the upcoming season.
Just as in past years, it will help you plan your summer too, with summer camps, aquatics programs and pool passes included in the brochure.
During the Park District’s last registration event, the decision was made to hold gymnastics registration on a separate day from general registration in an effort to reduce the high volume of traffic on the District’s current registration software system.
As a result of issues with the Elmhurst Park District’s registration software, the District made changes to the first day of registration process beginning with winter registration. Those changes included hosting gymnastics registration on a separate day and time in an effort to alleviate the burden on the software system. That registration took place this past weekend and went smoothly.

It’s no secret that two of the last three registrations have been frustrating and difficult for residents. Therefore, staff will be making changes to the first day of registration beginning with winter registration in December.
The Elmhurst Park District Board and staff share the frustration felt by residents on Saturday and we sincerely apologize that once again it took an unacceptable amount of time for some to register for programs. We were hopeful that we had found a solution that would work for our residents and were disheartened that that was not the case.
It was smooth sailing for participants signing up for summer programs during resident registration on Saturday, May 5. Unfortunately that wasn’t the case during the spring registration on Saturday, February 24, when the District’s registration software failed to meet the needs of the residents, resulting in delayed registrations and a lot of frustration.
At the March 12, 2018 Park Board meeting, Park District staff and the Board’s ad hoc IT committee provided updates regarding the District’s registration software, RecTrac from Vermont Systems, Inc. (VSI). The software ran at an unacceptably slow rate of speed during registration on February 24, 2018, causing concern amongst residents trying to sign up for programs.
We apologize for the disruption and inconvenience that occurred this morning with the Park District's registration software. We have been able to rectify the system running at an unacceptably slow rate of speed and it is now running properly. We are now working to understand the root cause of the problem.
